Make your selection in the very bottom left hand corner.

I had my account set for 40 posts per page and it's still doing that with the new site. I do want to request, though, that we be allowed to change that setting all the way to 100 posts per page. I can do that on other vBulletin board sites; I assume it's just an admin option.

2 questions:

Who was complaining with the old style and what was wrong with it?

Any idea how much of everyone's time you wasted by changing everything?

I don't want to be a whiner but I don't remember anyone asking for suggestions on how things could be improved. Although I can appreciate the work that must have went into this, I think if you knew your audience better you would realize that this will turn more people off than on.

My homepage seems to be mostly ads, how do I turn the ads off?

EDIT: I guess that makes 3 questions...Ha Ha.

RE-EDIT: I see now those ads are articles that the admin posted as threads and it says "ADD replies".

Thanks albertabuck, I see what you mean about the grey print. Dark version is too dark, bright is too bright. How does one get 40 posts to a page?

Otherwise any feedback on what you do not like, we can tweak colors, formatting, and options.

Already switched it back.

Wow what a change. First impression is I prefer the old format.

Change it in "User CP" in the middle of the black bar just down from the top.

Well, that's where it is on mine because I changed back to the classic or legacy or whatever-the-heck-it-was-called view.

Time for a poll.

Who likes the old layout?
